DateQuestionAnswer
2017-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Anthony Desclafani. Yay or nay?
(M Bison from Spain)
Yay. I don't love him as much as Bret Sayre does, but I like him fine. I didn't think he'd be as good as he was last year, and I don't think it was a fluke. Last year definitely made me revise my outlook for him upwards.

FWIW, I just put up a post on the message board of one of my home leagues telling them I'm doing a chat now, so I expect to start getting clowned by league mates fairly soon. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is a better Keeper this year and long term? Anthony DeSclafani or Eduardo Rodriguez? Thank you.
(CharJaco from Bay Area)
Okay, this is fun. I'm a big Eduardo guy ... as a regular No. 3 starter. PECOTA favors ADS over #ED, but just slightly, as the two have similar last-season cFIPs. Parks aren't likely to help either one. Eduardo's dealing with a little bit of injury worries today, so maybe I'd ring up DeSclafani for this year, but Eduardo over the long haul. (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)After reading Reds prospect list today, seem to have a very solid/upper echelon farm system. Thoughts on the start of their rebuild and future contention? Appreciate the time with these chats
(Bob from Cincy)
I really like the return they got on Cueto. I don't feel the same way about what they did with the Frazier and Chapman deals. I thought they sold at the lowest possible value on both. Would have netted much more last summer at the trade deadline. I really like Raisel Iglesias, Anthony DeSclafani, Brandon Finnegan, etc... and I think with Stephenson and Reed on the way, they should have the pieces necessary for a solid rotation. I want to see a step forward from Billy Hamilton this year, that would be huge. (George Bissell)
2014-11-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Anthony Desclafani has been pretty impressive so far in the AFL. What are you hearing about him?
(Kevin from In a hole)
"The Year Ahead: DeSclafani is one of those arms that consistently pitches with a high level of confidence in his stuff. He isn't afraid to come right after and challenge hitters, avoiding spells of nibbling and trying to be too fine. When the stuff is more solid average than well above average, however, there needs to be some element of finesse to avoid working in spots that usually result in ringing contact around the yard. The right-hander ran into this during his call-up in 2014, especially when working as a starter. DeSclafani's mentality and fastball-slider combo likely slot him into a relief role over the long run, where his heater can play up a tick in short bursts and his aggressive approach fits with getting two or three concentrated outs before handing the ball over to someone else. There is a chance that the 24-year-old can tone things down a bit and get enough out of the changeup to hang as a starter on a second-division team for the early portion of his career. The righty should be in line to log major-league time in 2015, in all likelihood consistently coming out of Miami's bullpen at some point in the season." --Chris Mellen, from here: http://bit.ly/1zkgzqQ (Sam Miller)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think is the ceiling of recently-debuted Anthony Desclafani?
(David from Toronto)
Just a back-end fantasy starter assuming he even sticks in the rotation. He's still no lock to avoid a bullpen fate. (Bret Sayre)
